Cryogenic Pipe Supports Designed for a Facility in Massachusetts

Type: Cryogenic Pipe Supports
Material: Carbon Steel | Polyurethane
Design: -320°F | 36″ – 48″ Dia. | 52″ W x 57″ H x 67″ L

PT&P received an order to custom design 16 cryogenic pipe supports for a contractor in Massachusetts. They needed a pipe forming a T-section lined with insulation and trimmed to accommodate the pipe perpendicular to the shoe length. The overall dimensions of the order are pipe sizes ranging from 36″ to 48″ in diameter, 52″ width and 57″ to 67″ height. Our insulation is designed to support the pipe and its contents. When insulated pipes are supported, the weight of the pipe, the contents, the operating temperature, and the amount of energy loss must be considered. In order to support the pipe and minimize energy loss from heat transfer, a pre-insulated pipe support is necessary. If the material in the pipe is high temperature such as high pressure steam or heating oil, then high temperature insulation is required, and these supports are called hot shoes. If the material is cold, such as liquefied natural gas, cooling water or ammonia, then low temperature insulation is needed, and these types of supports are called cold shoes.

Cryogenic Pipe Supports Designed for an Air Separation Unit

A total of sixty-four pre-insulated pipe supports were designed for cryogenic temperatures in an air separation unit in China. The units are 12″ in length with 4.5″ thick polyurethane foam insulation. The cold shoes were designed with carbon steel shoe clamps and finished with a black epoxy and include polyethylene slide plates.Standard quality control and dimensional tests were performed prior to shipment.

Cryogenic Supports with Permali® Insulation for an LNG Plant in Abu Dhabi

Cryogenic Supports with Permali® Insulation

Over 30 cryogenic supports fabricated from a combination of carblon steel, permali® block and stainless steel were manufactured for an LNG plant in Abu Dhabi. The shoes measures 18″ x 14″ x 12″ and are designed for 10″ of thermal movement and temperatures as low as -167°C. The cold shoes are coated with a custom paint job and went through standard testing prior to shipment.

Pre-insulated Pipe Supports

Pre-insulated Pipe Supports

Piping Technology & Products, Inc. custom designed and manufactured 86 pre-insulated pipe supports for a customer. The pipe supports are specifically designed for use in cryogenic lines using polyurethane insulation that can withstand temperatures as low as -51° F. The supports weigh between 17 & 36 lbs. each and are designed for pipe sizes ranging from 2 to 4 in diameter. The clamp and base used with this pipe support are fabricated from A36 carbon steel. Upon customer’s request, a three layer customized paint was applied to the clamp and base.
